Trendyol Store Management
Once you’ve filled in all the information and uploaded the relevant documents, if there are no shortcomings, your entry is approved and your seller registration is created. You can manage your store via your seller account or integration account. A Seller Panel is assigned for your seller account. Through this panel, you can upload your products, monitor orders, track returns, access basic sales reports, and seek assistance for seller support. However, these operations are not sufficient for substantial sales charts. Therefore, in addition to this, store management should be supported with an additional marketplace integration service that can manage your correct accounting and financial processes.
